Brabus Ultimate E Proves Nice Things Come In Small Packages

The Brabus Ultimate E is not an entirely new product. It was first revealed as a concept in 2017 and was followed by a production-ready version two years later. About a year ago at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Brabus revealed a new electric-powered variant limited to just 23 units. Today, the tuning studio is ready to reveal another Ultimate E iteration.

The refurbished model is based on the 2020 model year Smart EQ ForTwo Cabrio and benefits from improved performance from its electric powertrain. With a reprogrammed torque control system, special modules for the driving dynamics switch and accelerator pedal, and a special catwalk, the electric pocket rocket now delivers a peak power of 92 horsepower (68 kilowatts) .

It is important to note that this peak is only possible when selecting the Sport + riding mode, one of the four different modes available. It unleashes the full potential of the electric powertrain of 133 pound-feet (180 Newton-meters) of torque, enough for a sprint from a standstill to 62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) in 10.9 seconds. Top speed is electronically controlled at 130 km / h.

The car’s sporting ambitions are complemented by the series-exclusive Widebody Widestar kit from Brabus. It features a modified front fairing, new fender wideners at all four corners, 18-inch wheels with 235/30 R18 tires at the rear, new rocker panels, and more. Matching performance brakes and a stiffer suspension from Brabus are also on the list.

This updated version of the Ultimate E is labeled as a production model and has a starting price of € 49,449 in Germany or around $ 58,630 at current exchange rates.
